The main asset setting Goya masts apart is Diagonal Flex™. No other mast offers this technology. It does not only allow Goya masts to bend to the amazing curves you know from laboratory photos past and present, but while in that shape, Diagonal Flex™ enables the mast to twist extremely lively, working in direct synergy with Goya sails.
The difference resulting from this feature is expressed by a very simple number: In the winter of its introduction, being the big wave season, between all Goya Team Riders, shops and distributors, we broke a total of three Direct Drive™ masts. This was only possible through Goya’s Diagonal Flex™ technology.
The wall thickness of a Direct Drive™ mast is about 50% thicker than that of comparable masts, while still being among the lightest weights, made possible by superb materials and aerospace industry build standards.
Our mast layup gradually adapts to each sizing, enabaling us to go from 12 IMCS on our 310 all the way up to 30 IMCS on the 490, while still keeping the same bending percentages or even getting a stiffer bottom section on the larger masts, making our RDM masts outperform SDM masts in both performance and durability.
On top, Goya masts have the smoothest and most consistent build in the industry, resulting in extremely consistent mast bends across all sizes. The US based factory building Goya masts operates at the highest level of composite manufacturing, with a client list including many aerospace and aeronautical companies. Quality and consistency are taken utmost seriously.
Slip Grip™ is a rough surface treatment in the boom area of all Goya Direct Drive™ masts, effectively preventing your boom from sliding up and down.
First, you can reduce the number of masts needed to cover your range of sails, thus reducing the amount of gear to tote around. Second, mixing and matching bend curves allows you to tweak and customize the performance of your rig, a practice often overlooked and underestimated. Third, you will discover that all Goya mast tops and bottoms are interchangeable and share the same grade of pristine quality, made in the USA.
